If you dont have a pressure pot you can still make this dish. Add the oil to a regular pot & brown the beef, when browned add enough water to pot & boil beef until tender. When tender continue w/guide

You can also make this dish in a slowcooker.πŸ˜„

To the oil I add a tsp of sugar. The sugar will caramelize and help with the browning process. My mom taught me to do this.\ud83d\ude0a
